OUT LEVEL cossoul XAROPE
We have roots that want to project forward.
Able to diffuse our cultural laziness, providing the required identity
to achieve transgression.
Breaking nowadays conformist and often stifling atmosphere with sporadical readings, in portuguese translation, of William Burroughs,
Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac writings.
The first spoken words are from Allen Ginsberg,
"On Burroughs' Work" followed by "In Back of the Real"
in the first part of "GUITARRA AZUL", when the assault on contemporary existentialism begin with the philosophical blue guitar gradually embracing in hypnotic drum and flying flute.
"POENTE-NASCENTE" brings a meditating mist in a vision of ancient tribal gathering,
a moment of mind expansion, not without electrical peaks from intrumental growing.
"CARNE PICADA, O MAGNÍFICO" is a wild declamation, extracted from William Burroughs "The Naked Lunch",
accompanied by a magnificent drum solo.
"GODOT II" is where the savage grow with mantric incantations, such as "HORSE" the invocation that rides hard untill "KEROUAC", a kind of spoken word tribute (once this is the last music recorded live)
where we can listen to Jack Kerouac´s "Lonesome Traveler".
Recorded live at Guilherme Cossoul in a concert of OUTLEVEL (Luis Antero, solo project), December 2007 and later mixed with drum, percussion, flute and didgeridoo by XAROPE.
The next ones were not recorded in that concert but consider them as 3 extra-tracks from this cooperation and we cannot deny the influence from the soundtrack of "Chappaqua", (Ravi Shankar - The Fugs - Philip Glass)
the semi-autobiographical movie directed by Conrad Rooks.
The most cinematographic of them all is "MONDEGA BEATNICKS"
wich symbolic sense is connected to the sacred place of the runnning waters.
Notable guitar and drum performance in "BAGAÇO" and that refers to the selective, also known as mixture of characters.
For the end, influenced by regardless components of technology, "AM BUDA" is enhancing the self to catalytic decomposition and obscure psichadelic discoveries.
OUT LEVEL: guitar, budda machine, radio and vocals XARHOPE: drums, keys, didgeridoo, electronics and voices
guest: MINSON: howls and booings in the "MONDEGA BEATNICKS" theme.
